Reviews

Recommend Chittenden Lodge, characterful and comfortable, good value. All set in a beautiful area, with so much to enjoy whatever your interests.

Mrs Sandra Davey,

The cottage was excellently appointed. We loved the decor and the views over the gardens of the owner's house, and were grateful for the rapid attention to any faults we pointed out. The owners left a complementary bottle of apple juice, a pot of home-made jam and a bottle of milk for us, which were much appreciated.

Mr Nicholas Kingsley,
